philosophy of teaching

I take education as a passion, I have devoted my efforts to teaching and finding ways to permeate students ́ learning with experience, and hands-on projects that above all help know themselves in a deeper manner.  I believe that as one knows oneself better there is a higher understanding of humanity, its purpose and value.  I search to help students link their feelings, thoughts and actions into their beliefs, and be able to channelize them through their expressions, written, spoken, and projects they do to achieve a better notion of communicating themselves and develop a beautiful higher skill such as the written expression.
